Gloves were the centre of my growing up in the fifties and sixties. The family glove business, W Pinkham & Son Ltd. was in its heyday and I spent many Saturday mornings at the Witham factory with my father. Although the business closed in 1966 gloves have always fascinated me and I have researched and recorded extensively the history of the business from its beginnings in 1899. So it was a great privilege to have been made a trustee in 2020 giving me the opportunity to support the trust’s development. I retired as a trustee in 2022.
